Flash in the Pantheon
Here's the second ebook from Gloomy Seahorse Press. It's a collection of exactly 101 flash fictions called Flash in the Pantheon and it's available for the Kindle or other ebook reading device for the grand sum of $1.99 (that's about £1.24 or just over 1 pence per story). If you're interested, you can buy it here.
What is a flash fiction? When I was younger flash fictions tended to be called 'short shorts' and the undisputed master of the form was Fredric Brown. The ideal flash fiction should certainly be less than 1000 words long; better if it's less than 500 words. Other masters of this miniature genre include Franz Kafka, Daniil Kharms and Jorge Luis Borges, of course! There are some free samples by various writers on the Gloomy Seahorse blog (I need to update this site more often!)
The fine cover was done by Tony Lovell, a newcomer in the field of book design, who I believe might go on to achieve great things.
